This may sound strange but I'd encourage everyone to give it a try. Back in the good ol' days of college, when I had no job and could afford naps in
the afternoon, I would lay on the couch either watching tv, listening to music, listening to nothing...etc. and my eyes would get "heavy". While my
eyelids were just about to meet, right before being closed, I could make out figures moving around. Particularly at night when there's a little light
(moonlight works fine) in the room you can make out silhouettes of people coming up and looking at you, moving around the room, coming in and out of
doors...etc. I believe it's just the brain filling in gaps or doing whatever it does before sleep but maybe this is what the OP is talking about?
I'm not saying take a nap right now but go lay on the couch/bed, stare at the wall (don't intently stare, just look without focusing) through your
eyelashes and let your mind go. It's certainly strange. If the Sun is still out where you are now, try it as you lay in bed tonight. I use to do it
at night back in the day when I couldn't sleep (too many naps, maybe? Interesting post BTW!!
